The Side Saddle Chase Foundation’s growth continues to support point to point races and hunts as they bring in a new audience and supporters through riding aside. Their mission to increase interest in point to point racing supports the need to preserve and protect the land where we hunt and race.
— Donald Yovanovich, President, Virginia Point to Point Foundation
